Faith & Law Seminar 2009 – Roanoke, VA

October 6, 2009 Roanoke, VA / Sponsored by Gentry Locke Rakes & Moore, LLP

A balance of faith and law can be achieved.

Registration for this event is now closed.

Religious organizations encounter many of the same issues that confront other businesses during their lifecycle. We’ve seen this time and time again in our 85+ years of practice. Just as an organization or congregation will grow and change, so will its legal needs, it challenges, and its opportunities.

One uninformed decision can undo decades of service or jeopardize your tax-exempt status. You spend many hours each week attending to the needs of people who turn to you for spiritual guidance.  Shouldn’t you spend a day considering the care and consequences of your organization’s legal needs?

Join the attorneys at Gentry Locke Rakes & Moore for a day designed to inform and assist houses of worship, religious schools, and faith-based long-term care and service agencies in obtaining the best options for the needs of their organization.


Topics will include:                                         

  • Employment matters; including compensation, issues regarding volunteers, background checks, hiring and firing
  • Legal liability, charitable immunity and insurance coverage issues
  • Building maintenance, improvements, and construction
  • Tax matters; tax-exempt status, charitable trusts and fundraising
  • Corporate governance; including your board of directors, financing and real estate issues
  • Crisis management and public relations

Who should attend:

  • Directors, business managers and board members of faith-based retirement and long-term care facilities, religious schools, and other religious institutions
  • Those in leadership positions at houses of worship, such as Treasurers and Presidents of boards and congregations
  • Ministers, Rabbis, Mullahs and regional religious representatives
  • Program directors and office managers

Cost to attend: $75 includes continental breakfast, lunch, and all seminar materials. Each additional person from the same organization can attend for a discounted rate of just $50 per person. Please note: Upon registration, you will receive a confirmation email and be mailed an invoice for payment by check.
